3. NON-CONSENT ITEMS:
 
A. RESOLUTION -- CONSIDER DEDICATION AND ACCEPTANCE OF COMMON AREAS WITH IMPROVEMENTS WITHIN THE COLONIES PUBLIC IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT:
(Contact:  Kelley Shaw, Development Services)
The City's public improvement district (PID) policy (Section 15, City of Amarillo Development Policy Manual) requires that completed and accepted common areas and their improvements must be dedicated to the City.  The Colonies PID home owners association is requesting the City to accept the dedication of nine tracts identified as "common areas" and the improvements (walls, sidewalks, benches, irrigation, etc.) that were constructed within these common areas.  The plans for the improvements and their construction were reviewed for their adherence to City standards by the appropriate City staff.  City staff has verified the completion of the improvements and find that the improvements were constructed in general conformance to the approved plans.

Although the common areas and improvements are being dedicated to the City of Amarillo, all maintenance, operation, and administration costs related to the improvements are funded by revenue generated by annual assessments paid by property owners with the Colonies PID as outlined by the approved Colonies PID petition (Resolution No. 2-13-01-1). It is also important to note that the dedication instrument must also have a "reversionary interest" clause stating that if the PID is ever dissolved, fee simple title to the property will revert back to the home owners association.

B. CONSIDER -- RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING APPLICATION TO THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION BUS AND BUS FACILITIES INFRASTRUCTURE INVESTMENT PROGRAM AND TO THE TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION FOR TRANSPORTATION DEVELOPMENT CREDITS:
(Contact:  Marita Wellage-Reiley, Transit Director)
This item conducts a public hearing and considers a resolution to authorize the City Manager to apply to the U.S. Department of Transportation Bus and Bus Facilities Infrastructure Investment Program (49 U.S.C. 5339) and to the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) for Transportation Development Credits.  The FY18/19 grant application is for federal funding in the amount of $359,122.00 and for TxDOT credits in the amount of $71,824.40. Grant funds will be used to purchase new transit buses and supplement transit infrastructure improvements.

C. CONSIDER -- RESOLUTION TO ACCEPT A PETITION REQUESTING ANNEXATION:
(Contact: Cris Valverde, Assistant Director of Planning and Development Services Department)
This item accepts a petition requesting an annexation of land into the corporate limits of the City of Amarillo, directs the Planning and Development Services Department to prepare a service plan, and sets the date, time, and place of two public hearings (March 26, 2019 and April 2, 2019) as required by State Law.
